World of TASO

Welcome to my little corner.
These are my old frames which are pretty large, but I just ordered even larger frames because I figure my nose can handle it. You go, nose! 

Since moving to Astoria, OR my allergies have been off the chain, and most days wearing contacts are out of the question because my eyes are so irritated. Finally caved and decided to update my prescription and just get a pair for emergencies. Plus, I’ll be driving from Astoria back home to San Diego in a few weeks and I’m going to have to treat my (eye) balls with a little love and respect. No worries, my Dad will be with me to split driving.

Do you wear glasses? How do you enjoy it? I have had vision problems since I was 11 and found it weird whenever people willingly wore glasses as a fashion statement. But I suppose I can embrace the nerdy chicness of it all. Somehow.

Before there was ever little Zom, our Golden Retriever, Chuck loved playing with plastic bottles. Not just plastic bottles, but those huge liter ones. Now that we have Zombie, everything is always a battle over who can win the prized possession. Needles to say, cuteness always ensues.

Heading out. Got my trusty wardrobe essentials.

Just finished baking these for my puppies!

Lovely hour long walk this morning with the pups. Found a nice walking route that I’ll most definitely do on the weekends. I’ll have to see how busy it is during the weekday because I walk by the high school. If it’s relatively calm then it’ll become our daily morning route.

Had an almost run-in with a lady and her St. Bernard. Zombie has improved on his socialization 90%, but he can still be a little anxious when he sees a new dog or person and whine/bark a little. Thankfully the lady was able to walk on the opposite side before Zombie got really worked up. Chuck of course is so relaxed and ignores everything so I’m glad for that. I hope Zombie gets to that point by the end of the year. 

That’s really my only concern when it comes to my twice daily walks. Zoms can rile Chuck up with his anxiety sometimes that I hope Chuck’s quiet and calm nature rubs off on Zoms outdoors. There are a lot of dogs and children in my neighborhood meaning A LOT of distractions.

A few weeks back we took both my fur babies to the farmers market and they both did extremely well. Our vet suggested exposing to Zoms to as many social situations as possible to desensitize him. Slowly but surely Zoms will be a calm dog. Loving and playful, but without all the anxiety and fear.

Ah, an enlightening post about what color to paint my nails. It’s refreshing to even be able to think about painting my nails, honestly. Eric and I have been living out of suitcases and duffel bags for the past month. It wasn’t until last week that we were able to move into our house and even then, there are boxes and things all out of place that it still feels chaotic and not quite like home just yet.

Perhaps my first video back after three months of not filming will be fashion on-the-go. What to pack and make sure you can still coordinate and create different outfits while in the midst of moving from one state to another. Trying to predict the weather and circumstances is a necessary skill to hone. Packing light and being as practical as possible, yet bringing everything you need.

For now however, should I go with Trout Pout or Bossy Boots?
